Description:
HMS Bedouin (pennant number L67, later F67) was a Tribal-class destroyer of the British Royal Navy that saw service in World War II. She was launched on 21 December 1937 by William Denny and Brothers.

She served in the Second Battle of Narvik, where she was slightly damaged, and in the 1941 commandos raid on the Lofoten islands. During the Battle of Mid-June, she was sunk by the combined action of Italian cruisers Montecuccoli and Eugenio di Savoia and SM.79 torpedo bombers on 15 June 1942. She was hit by at least 12 six-inch rounds and near-misses from the cruisers and an aerial torpedo before sinking. She managed to shoot down the torpedo bomber which delivered the coup de grĂ¢ce to her. 28 men from her complement were killed in action and 213 were taken as prisoners of war by the Italian Navy.
